Thunder, perfect Prada

Via PaleoJudaica (scroll to Feb. 24), this fascinating snippet about the most enigmatic of all the Nag Hammadi texts used as a perfume ad.

Some Pagan scholars see in the "I" of the text, "Thunder, Perfect Mind," a goddess figure, perhaps Sophia, the divine personification of Wisdom, perhaps the goddess Isis. Another translation is here.

UPDATE: I fixed the link. Sorry about that.
